We have much to praise the Lord for! While we did not have any meetings for the month of October, the Lord allowed us to meet with a few pastors to schedule meetings for 2018. We were able to fill up our schedule for February and March, and we even scheduled a meeting for September! After a slow start, it is exciting to schedule these meetings. Please pray for us as we continue to schedule more meetings. We were also able to purchase tickets for our survey trip in April. The Lord provided tickets at an exceptional price, and we praise Him for providing in that way! That trip will take place April 3rd-19th. Please pray for wisdom as we finalize our schedule and for the winter, spring and leading up to our survey trip. In the meantime, we continue to keep busy serving in our home church.
Every Sunday night, the children at our church hold what they call "KBC" or, Kids Bible Club. This is led by the children, and they use this time to discuss our pastor's messages or other Biblical topics. This past month, we were invited to "speak" and tell the kids a little bit more about Ecuador. This was quite the honor, especially considering that adults are not allowed in KBC. We are thankful for these little prayer warriors and their hearts for the Lord, missions and our ministry.
October 29th marked the 32nd anniversary for our sending church. We were thankful to be able to spend this day with our church family and celebrate God's faithfulness. Lisa had the opportunity to teach a ladies' Sunday School class. We appreciate this ministry opportunity that the Lord provided for her. We also combined our anniversary celebration
with the 500th anniversary of the Protestant Reformation. It was a joy to be able to take part in a concert focusing on the 5 Solas of the Protestant Reformation: Scripture Alone, Faith Alone, Grace Alone, Christ Alone, To the Glory of God Alone!
Please be in prayer for us this weekend as we minister at Calvary Baptist Church in Loganville, Ga. Jeffrey will be preaching for the morning service, and then we will present our ministry in the evening. We will also have several opportunities to minister in music. The church graciously offered us the use of their Prophet's Chamber, so we will be traveling down Saturday afternoon. We are looking forward to a great weekend! Thank you for your continued prayers!
